2003-2005? Seriously? I have a Kenmore from 2009 and it can't go one year without breaking down and needing repair. When the warranty expires next year it's headed to the scrap heap. I highly doubt many of their units from 03-05 are actually still in service....total junk...

Which is exactly why I'd rather put my money on an old-school brown case dehum off craigslist than anything a retailer sells today ...unfortunately from what i read this appliance in particular seems to be notorious for short lifespans, unless I suppose you go for a commercial grade industrial one, which I am tempted to do... even Kenmore dropped their 5-year refrig system warranty in past few years, which speaks volumes.

For those of you with a Sears Master Protection Plan and have repetitively been denied replacement dehumidifiers under recall, you have been lied too. My past BBB case last year: sears' Lesile Daley stated: "...is entitled to a comparable replacement since the product cannot be repaired..." also "...we have notified the appropriate management teams to address this training issue..." the replacement unit was just recalled and guess what - they must have 'forgot' to correct it. also has anyone ever been reimburse for a rental under mpa?
